Joe Bongiorno posted his first Top 10 finish in the Meadowlands driver standings with 32 wins during the 2014-15 meet.
With the bulk of his success coming from the family stable
managed by his father, Bob Bongiorno, Joe also picked up
plum assignments from the sport’s leading trainer, Ron Burke.
Bongiorno developed and displayed talent as a bright teenager in New Jersey, and continued to gain valuable experience
competing at the sport’s highest level in early 2014. Among
his 16 wins during the inaugural meet at the Meadowlands,
World Cup rallied to a nose upset in a $30,000 Open Trot in
1:52.2.
Voted the 2011 Rising Star of the Year by the Monticello
Chapter of the US Harness Writers Association, and the 2011
National Amateur Driver of the Year, Bongiorno is the grandson of Harold “Sonny”
Dancer, won his first race at Freehold Raceway at age 18 with Mr Bennett and apprenticed under George “Buzzy” Sholty.
Joe scored his first Meadowlands win in a dead heat in 2012 with Moving Art. He
became the second youngest driver to post a $1 million season at age 19 and won 160
races that season.
Bongiorno followed up with another $1 million campaign in 2013. The graduate of
Colts Neck High School won a Finn Tack Driver of the Week Award in July of 2013
with three upsets. He kicked off his triple in a leg of the Ima Lula Series and put a
new lifetime mark on Real Babe of 1:53.2 at 12-1. Seek The Dragon lowered his mark
to 1:51.3 for Bongiorno, then Allamerican Apache scored at 12-1.

John Campbell turned 60 with a vengeance by fashioning a vintage Top
5 2014-15 meet at the Meadowlands with 97 wins and $2,863,342, and
hooked up with the rags-to-riches trotter JL Cruze. Campbell and the
four-year-old gelding by Crazed dominated the sport, winning finals of the
Super Bowl, Charles Singer Memorial, Shiaway St. Pat, Bobby Weiss and
Graduate. The latter came with a record of 1:49.4, the fastest trotting mile
in Meadowlands history. JL Cruze followed up with another world record
of 2:04.2 in the mile and one eighth Hambletonian Maturity. Campbell also
swept the Graduate for pacers with Doo Wop Hanover.
Unfortunately, Campbell was forced to miss his first Hambletonian in 33
years with a broken wrist suffered in a qualifying mishap at the Meadowlands Racetrack.
During the inaugural meet at the New Meadowlands, John Campbell finished sixth in the standings with 68 wins, and continued to make a nightly
impact among the sport’s top drivers. He won a $100,000 NJSS Final
with Doo Wop Hanover, and he also finished a hard-fought second in the
Hambletonian with Nuncio.
Campbell’s title as harness racing’s all-time leading driver is secure with
$293 million in earnings, more than half of which he has earned at the
Meadowlands. Campbell became the youngest person elected to Harness Racing’s Hall of Fame at age 35.
A decade later, on March 18, 2000, he became the first reinsman in horse racing history -- Standardbred or
Thoroughbred -- to reach $100 million in earnings at a single racetrack at the Meadowlands.
Campbell has won 16 Meadowlands driving titles and has an unprecedented seven victories in the Meadowlands Pace and six in the Hambletonian. Campbell is ninth among the sport’s leading dash winning drivers
with more than 10,000 carer wins, and he is also the leading driver in the Breeders Crown series with 47
trophies.
Campbell experienced a few challenging seasons during the mid-2000s, beginning with a fractured elbow
sustained in a racing accident that kept him sidelined for several months in 2003 and 2004. After a lukewarm 2005 seaon, Campbell experienced a rebirth for which he was named U.S. Harness Writers Association’s 2006 Driver of the Year. However, that resurgence was cut short when he fractured his left leg in a
Breeders Crown elimination on October 21, 2006 at Woodbine. Campbell made a triumphant return in April
2007 and posted his first $10 million season since 2002, despite missing the first three months of racing.
Once again in 2011, he bounced back from serious injury just in time to finish third in the Hambletonian with
Opening Night.
In 2000, Campbell was awarded a Meritorious Service Medal by the Governor General of Canada for his
commitment to harness racing. He was saluted by the New Jersey State Assembly in 2004.
In 2012, Campbell was named President of the sport’s Grand Circuit, and he continues to be one of harness
racing’s great speakers and goodwill ambassadors. In 2013, Campbell was voted the Stan Bergstein-Proximity Award by the United States Harness Writers Association.

his sixth straight driving title at Dover Downs, Callahan vaulted past 4,000
career wins and $60 million.
Callahan’s 2015 highlights included victories in the $400,000 Adios Final
at The Meadows with Dude’s The Man, the $300,000 James Lynch and
$350,000 Valley Forge at Pocono Downs with Bettor Be Steppin, and a second in the $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks with Rules of the Road.

standouts Golden Receiver and Drop The Ball, finished fifth in his second
Hambletonian with Resolve, and passed the $50 million mark in career
earnings in 2014.
In 2013, Callahan came up with a second-place finish in the driver standings with 99 wins. Nicknamed
“Captain” through a Big M promotion, the affable and media-friendly Callahan was also honored with
his own bobblehead doll in 2013. He went past $9 million on the season for the first time and 3,000
career wins.
Also in 2013, the Callahan star was shining brightly on Hambletonian Day when he guided D’Orsay
to a world record on 1:51.4 in the $55,000 Ima Lula Final and came right back with a 4-1 upset in the
$217,100 Lady Liberty with Drop The Ball in 1:49. He also drove in his first Hambletonian Final with
Lauderdale (sixth) and competed in his first Breeders Crown events in 2013.
Callahan had started to make his presence felt by cracking the Top 10 at The Meadowlands for the
first time in 2012 with 35 wins, good for seventh in the standings that season. His 2012 summer highlight at The Big M came winning the $268,300 Sweetheart with Jerseylicious.
The 37-year-old from Easton, Maryland also guided world champion trotter Googoo Gaagaa, and he
also captured his fifth straight driving title at Dover Downs.
Callahan often donates to industry organizations like the Standardbred Retiredment Foundation,
Horse Lovers United and local SPCA groups, and was a nominee for the 2012 Rising Star Award.
As the son of noted horseman Nick Callahan, Corey went from a guy who didn’t even want to jog his
own father’s horses, to one of the top drivers on the Eastern Seaboard.
A graduate of the University of Kentucky where he played hockey, Callahan traded in a corporate suit
and started driving at the age of 27.
Callahan represented the United States in the 25th World Driving Championship in 2011 and finished
second.
The biggest win of his career came during the 2009 season when he captured the $500,000 Hoosier
Cup with Mr. Wiggles.

Following a serious injury in 2014, Andy Miller bounced back with a
strong 2015 season and landed in the Top 10 at the Meadowlands. In
addition to assisting his wife Julie Miller, Andy drove two of the fastest
miles of his career with Odds On Equuleus winning back-to-back in
1:47.4 and 1:47.3, and passed the $3 million mark in 2015.
Andy Miller was involved in an accident at Yonkers Raceway on April
15, 2014, breaking a pair of lumbar vertebrae in his back, and requiring eight hours of surgery and months of recovery time. Miller had
just passed 8,000 career wins and the $100 million milestone, and he
guided world champion trotting mare Perfect Alliance to victory in the
Charles Singer Memorial with a stakes record of 1:52.2.
With a positive prognosis for a full recovery, “The Orange Crush” continued to assist his wife Julie with their stable based at Gaitway Farm
in Englishtown, NJ. They finished second, third and eleventh with
world champion Designed To Be, Take The Money and Cee Bee Yes,
respectively in the 2014 $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks.
Andy Miller completed his eighth full season at the Meadowlands
in 2013, and finished third in the driver standings with 96 wins and $1,852,774. His major victories
included the Super Bowl Final with Windsun Galliano, the Exit 16W Final with Mr Dennis, the Junior
Trendsetter Final with Resistance Futile, the Arthur J. Cutler Memorial and John Cashman Memorial
with Sevruga, a Golden Girls division with Feeling You and a NJSS Final with Cee Bee Yes.
A leading driver on the Chicago circuit, Andy Miller
began driving full time at the Meadowlands in
2006 and
quickly established himself among the track’s leading
drivers.
Miller is the younger brother of trainer Ervin
Miller. Erv and Andy were born and raised in the
Amish
community of Arthur, Illinois. There were always Standardbred horses around the Miller home,
but they were used for buggies not racehorses. Andy Miller started driving in 1985 at the age of 16
on
the Illinois fair circuit. When Erv went to work for leading Illinois trainer Tex Moats, Andy followed and
was soon afforded the opportunity to drive stakes-caliber horses for Moats. By 1996, Miller topped
the $1 million mark in purses. After spending eight years with Moats, Miller moved on to become one
of the most successful catch drivers on the Balmoral-Maywood-Hawthorne circuit. In the meantime,
his older brother’s stable developed into a national powerhouse and Miller has often been in the sulky
behind Erv’s top trainees like Loyal Opposition.
One of Andy’s biggest career wins came when he guided Creamy Mimi to an upset ($27.60) in the
$750,000 Hambletonian Oaks in 2008.
“Team Orange Crush” send out their third Hambletonian finalist in 2012, Money On My Mind. They
campaigned 2009 Older Trotter of the Year Lucky Jim to a dazzling 17 wins in 18 starts that season.
Lucky Jim won nearly every major stake in his division, including the Arthur J. Cutler Memorial, Titan
Cup and Breeders Crown. He trotted a world record of 1:50.1 in the Nat Ray on Hambletonian Day.

best $7,939,143 season in 2014, Miller soared past 7,000 career wins
and $62 million. He also passed the $5 million mark for the sixth time
in the last five years.
Miller’s biggest wins at the Meadowlands in 2015 came with Spirit To
Win in the $187,000 Delvin Miller Memorial at 48-1, the $100,000 Miss
New Jersey with Wicked Little Minx, a $50,000 division of the TVG
Open with JK Endofanera and a $30,000 division of the Duenna with
Meadowbranch Wendy. He also made his Hambletonian debut with
French Laundry (eighth).
In 2014, Miller was a steady force during the stakes season, with
major wins in the $212,150 Mistletoe Shalee with Sandbetweenurtoes,
the $30,000 Duenna with Donatella Hanover and a shocking upset in the $225,000 New Jersey
Classic with Sweet Rock. He also guided Dancin Yankee with a world record equaling 1:47.2
at Pocono Downs.
The 42-year-old from Columbus, Ohio was born into harness racing. His grandfathers A.J.
Price and Clyde Miller both operated stables, his father Del S. Miller was a successful horseman, and his cousin is Hall of Fame driver Dave Miller.
After getting his start on the Ohio circuit, and driving regularly at The Meadows, Miller started
concentrating on the Meadowlands, Pocono Downs and Harrah’s Philadelphia in 2014, which
led to lucrative stakes opportunities for top trainers like Hall of Famer Jimmy Takter. Miller
was runner up for the second time in the North America Cup with the Takter-trained favorite
Tellitlikeitis, who won his elimination in 1:48.4. He was also second in the 2010 edition with
We Will See. Tellitlikeitis finished third in the Meadowlands Pace.
Miller was also second in the 2013 Canadian Pacing Derby with Clear Vision, who won that
year’s Quillen Memorial, and Miller also captured the 2013 Milton Stakes with Rocklamation.
On April 11, 2007, Miller drove a record equaling 10 wins on a 13-race program at Northfield Park.
Miller has faced his share of adversity, including bad spills, which led to some personal medication issues, and turned out to be a series of events that completely turned his life around.
In mid 2007, Miller received a one-year suspension. After being in a couple of bad accidents,
he successfully battled addiction to pain medication and substance abuse, and credits trainer
Dan Daley with his recovery. Miller also met his wife, Stacey, and they now have three young
children.

past the $10 million mark in 2013.
Miller got on a roll early in the 2012 meet, winning six series finals in the first four months. He won his
first Hambletonian Oaks with long-shot Personal Style in 1:53.1, hooked up with Jimmy Takter’s fearsome freshman trotters To Dream On and Corky, and pulled off the NJSS Final-Miss New Jersey Double
with Sarandon Blue Chip.
A native of Columbus, Ohio, Miller comes from a harness racing family - his father Donny and grandfather Clyde both had public stables. Miller first started driving in 1981, but it wasn’t until 1988 that his
career began to soar when he steered 153 horses to the winner’s circle, six more wins than he enjoyed in
the previous seven years. He had his first million-dollar season in 1992 and quickly went on to dominate
the Ohio circuit, behind the likes of 1995 and 1996 Ohio Horse of the Year Crisp Sahbra. Another one of
Miller’s Buckeye accomplishments was a nine-winner card on January 10, 1998 at Northfield Park. He
was inducted into the Ohio Harness Racing Hall of Fame in 2010.
Miller has guided many divisional standouts, including 2000 Trotting Horse of the Year Magician and
2007 Older Pacer of the Year Mister Big. But his greatest accomplishments thus far were with 2003
Horse of the Year No Pan Intended, whom he guided to victories in the Triple Crown of Pacing and the
Breeders Crown.

Marcus Miller scaled back his schedule at the Meadowlands
in 2015, yet still vaulted past the $2 million mark for the sixth
straight season and 2,200 career wins, splitting his time between Pocono Downs and Harrah’s Philadelphia.
In 2014 Miller matured into Top 10 catch driver at the Meadowlands and at major Pennsylvania tracks. Miller was a
nightly presence at the Big M, and he drove Cee Bee Yes to a
NJSS division win and runner-up finish the the $100,000 New
Jersey Sire Stakes Final. He drove in his first Meadowlands
Pace, guiding Jet Airway to a fifth place finish. He also drove
in his first Hambletonian Oaks with Cee Bee Yes.
Under the guidance of his father, trainer Erv Miller, Marcus Miller made a smooth
transition from county fairs to winning titles at Balmoral Park and Maywood Park in
Illinois. The young gun made his move to the Meadowlands in the Winter of 2013
and scored his first Big M win with Ideal Ginny on January 24th.
On June 29th, 2013, Marcus scored a “Cinco de Miller” with five wins, including three
for his dad, and two divisions of NJSS with Rockingcam Park and Ideal Helen. The
five bagger earned him a Finn Tack Driver of the Week Award.
Marcus posted back-to-back $3 million seasons in 2011 and 2012, reached $2.95 million in 2013, and he won a career best 501 races in 2011.
As a young boy, Marcus enjoyed baseball more than horses, but eventually the
horses won out and he started driving at age 15. He says he received plenty of career
advice from his uncle, Andy Miller.
Miller grew up in Sherman, Illinois and studied Marketing at Eastern Illinois University.
He married Sara Balagna in February of 2014.

Unfortunately, back and neck surgeries kept Ron Pierce on the sidelines for
most of 2015. Pierce had additional back surgery on September 3 and was
scheduled to miss the remainder of the season. The second leading money winning driver of all time stood at $215,343,639 and 9,570 career wins.
Think of the 2014 season and Ron Pierce, and one sensational pacer’s name
comes to mind - Sweet Lou. The sport’s top free-for-aller reeled off ten straight
wins, including the Roll With Joe at Tioga Downs, the Ben Franklin at Pocono
Downs in a world record of 1:47, the William Haughton Memorial and the US
Pacing Champonship at the Big M, and the Dan Patch at Hoosier Park. The
five-year-old triple millionaire by Yankee Cruiser became the first horse in history to win six times under 1:48, all consecutively. He capped his illustrious
career winning the $500,000 TVG FFA in 1:48.
Ron Pierce turned 58 in 2014 and the Hall of Famer continued to turn back the
clock as one of the sport’s premier catch drivers, while passing 9,000 career
wins. He also won the $213,500 Del Miller Memorial with Shake it Cerry, and
finished second in the $355,500 Peter Haughton Memorial with Uncle Lasse, and the $225,000 New Jersey Classic with Beat The Drum.
Pierce became only the second driver in history to pass $200 million in 2013, and up until 2012, the
second-leading driver of all time both at the Meadowlands and in the sport’s history, had never had a
season since turning 50 without winning at least one million dollar race, doing it a record six years in a
row.
In the Fall of 2013, “The Miracle Man” also became the second leading driver in Breeders Crown series
history by winning three finals at Pocono Downs with Shake It Cerry, Luck Be Withyou and Spider Blue
Chip, pushing his total to 29 trophies. Pierce also had three seconds with Authorize, Cedar Dove and
Frau Blucher.
In 2011, Pierce drove the sport’s leading money winner, Roll With Joe. At $1.6 million, the son of Cam’s
Card Shark pulled a 5-1 upset from post eight in the Meadowlands Pace in 1:48.2, giving Pierce his
fourth Pace trophy.
Pierce won his first Meadowlands driving title in 2004 -- 27 years after his first Meadowlands victory -and received the sport’s highest honor, a Hall of Fame induction, in 2005.
His first Hambletonian win was in 1993 with American Winner. He won his second Hambletonian with Donato Hanover in 2007 and his third in 2010 with Muscle Massive. Pierce guided Donato Hanover to Horse
of the Year honors and just under $3 million in career earnings.
In perhaps the greatest race in the track’s history, Pierce guided Art Official to a dazzling 1:47 world
record in the 2008 Meadowlands Pace, handing eventual Horse of the Year Somebeachsomewhere his
only career loss. Pierce won his first Meadowlands Pace with Dream Away in 1997 and scored his third
win in the track’s signature event in 2009 with Three-Year-Old Pacing Colt of the Year, Well Said.
Pierce has won driving titles at Cal Expo, Los Alamitos, Fairplex Park, Canterbury Downs and Macau
in China. An avid outdoorsman, he first gained national attention in 1989 as
the regular pilot of multiple
stakes winner Casino Cowboy. Since then, he has piloted an impressive list of champions, including
Shady Daisy, Pacing Triple Crown winner Blissfull Hall, triple millionaire Mr Muscleman, Tom Ridge,
Rainbow Blue and Passionate Glide.

It was certainly no surprise Tim Tetrick was once again battling for the top spot among
the sport’s leading money winning drivers in 2015. Tetrick finished third at the Meadowlands for the 2014-15 meet with 108 wins and $2,934,444. He also passed 8,800

Watching, who equaled the all-time fastest race mile of 1:46.4.
Tetrick finished fourth in the Meadowlands standings with 83 wins and $2.4 million,
and his other major wins at the Big M came with National Debt in the Buddy Gilmour
Memorial, Act Now in a $100,000 NJSS Final and Classic Martine in the Ima Lula Final in a world record of 1:50.1.
Tetrick followed up a dream season in 2012 with his seventh straight money title in 2013, passing the $14 million

Share, I Luv The Nitelife and Captaintreacherous. In addition to the Meadowlands Pace, Tetrick and “The Captain” also scored major wins in the North America Cup, the Max Hempt Memorial, the Cane Pace, the Bluegrass
and Tattersalls.
In 2012, Tetrick was the Big M’s leading money winner with $3,457,933. He capped off his 2012 campaign at the
Big M with a bang, winning his first Hambletonian with Market Share in 1:52.1. He teamed up again with trainer
Linda Toscano to post a world record of 1:50.1 with Horse of the Year Chapter Seven in the Nat Ray, which tied
the fastest trotting mile ever at the Meadowlands. Tetrick also won a NJSS Final with Soutwind Cocoa, another
Toscano trainee.
Also in 2012, Tetrick guided Check Me Out to a world record of 1:51.3 in the Del Miller Memorial. He handled a
pair of outstanding freshman pacers in Woodrow Wilson winner Captaintreacherous and NJSS champion Johny
Rock. Captaintreacherous notched the first ever sbu 1:50 mile by a two-year-old at the Big M, 1:49.3. Tetrick joined
Hall of Famers John Campbell and William O’Donnell as the only drivers to win three $1 million races in a single
season, doing it in a five-week span, and then won a record four Breeders Crown on the same night at Woodbine.
He has also been a regular driver of two world champion female pacers, American Jewel and Anndrovette.
A native of Illinois, driver Tim Tetrick burst onto the national scene in 2007 when he set seasonal records for wins,
with 1,189, and purses, with $18.35 million. He also won the $1 million Meadowlands Pace that year with Southwind Lynx. Tetrick has led all drivers in earnings each year since then, including another record $19.7 million in
2008, and quickly established himself as a Top 5 Meadowlands driver. Tetrick won his second Meadowlands Pace
in 2010 with One More Laugh, upsetting eventual Horse of the Year Rock N Roll Heaven.
Tetrick began his driving career in 1998 at the age of 16, guiding his father’s horses around the Illinois county fair
circuit. He graduated high school in 1999 and made the decision to try his hand as a catch-driver, despite winning
an agricultural business scholarship. He drove at Illinois fairs and Blue Grass Downs in Kentucky before moving
on to Hoosier Park in early 2001 where he became on of the top drivers.
Tetrick’s record numbers are all the more amazing considering he missed several weeks of racing in 2008 and 2009
to have his right hip replaced. The reinsman has suffered from a degenerative hip condition since childhood, had
his left hip replaced in December of 2013, and returned to racing in February of 2014 His astounding achievements
in the face of physical adversity earned him the nickname “The Bionic Man”.

Steve Elliott enjoyed a year of resurgence in
2015 with the help of a trio of top flight fouryear-old pacers, led by Doo Wop Hanover,
who swept the Graduate Series and finished
second in the US Pacing Championship.
Elliott also campaigned Rockeyed Optimist,
who won finals of the Sonsam and Clyde Hirt
Series, and Art History strung together a sixrace winning streak. He sent out New Jersey
Sires Stakes freshman pacing star Boston
Red Rocks, and he won the Shady Daisy on
Hambletonian Day with the sophomore filly
star Stacia Hanover.
Elliott finished third in the training standings with 42 wins and banked over $1
million at the Meadowlands.
The two-time Trainer of the Year won the 2007 Hambletonian with eventual
Horse of the Year Donato Hanover. That son of Andover Hall set an earnings record of $2,336,190 that season when Elliott was also voted the William Haughton
Good Guy Award for his cooperation with the media. Elliott had the best season
of his career in 2007, topping the $5 million mark.
The native of Detroit, Michigan has twice won the Meadowlands Pace with
Artistic Fella in 2006 and with Well Said in 2009. Well Said was the 2009 Pacer of
the Year and joined Precious Bunny as the only horses to win the North America
Cup, Meadowlands Pace and Little Brown Jug.
Going into the Fall of 2015, Elliott was closing in on 900 career wins and $29 million.
Elliott’s other top horses include Valley Victory, Sweet Reflection, Totally Ruthless, Burning Point, Southwind Tempo and Yankee Slide, one of his seven Breeders Crown champions.

Mark Ford cracked the Top 10 at the Meadowlands in
2015 and he was closing in on the impressive personal
milestone of $60 million.
In 2014, Ford continued to campaign one of the sport’s
powerhouse raceway stables and finished third in the
Big M trainer standings with 36 wins. Ford averaged
$3 million for fourteen consecutive seasons from 20002013.
In 2011, Ford posted his first $6 million season, which
placed him third in the nation. His stable won more
than 200 races for the twelfth straight year in 2012, and
Ford became the third youngest trainer to hit 3,000 career wins at age 41, and passed the $50 million mark.
Ford set career highs of 299 wins and $5,236,730 in 2010
led by New Jersey Sire Stakes two-year-old filly pacing champion Ace Of Pace. Also that
year, Ford became the first trainer to pass $40 million before the age of 40, and only the
sixth trainer to hit that milestone. He has won more than 3,500 races.
Ford owns a 200-horse state-of-the-art training center in upstate New York. A native of
West Virginia, Ford passed up an agricultural scholarship in England, and instead traveled to Florida after high school to work with Clint Galbraith. He moved to the New York/
New Jersey area in 1990 and eventually met Ted Wing, who became a big influence on
him. He also credits Ray Schnittker with assistance on his road to stardom.
One of Ford’s first success stories was the purchase of the durable double-gaited Six Day
War, for whom he paid just $12,000. Six Day War rewarded his faith with some $240,000
in earnings.
Ford stepped into the national spotlight thanks to the pacing gelding Gallo Blue Chip, the
2000 Horse of the Year. He is also noted for conditioning millionaires Whosurboy, Turnpike
Token, Armbro Animate, Stonebridge Kisses and Self Professed, as well as On The Attack.
Ford was named co-winner (along with Jimmy Takter) of the 2000 Glen Garnsey Trainer
of the Year Award by the United States Harness Writers’ Association.
Ford is a Director of the U.S. Trotting Association and the Standardbred Breeders and
Owners Association of New Jersey. Mark gives back to the industry in countless ways,
most recently in the form of lending his time, talents and staff toward the success of the
recently concluded USTA Driving School in Goshen, N.Y.

Mark Harder regained the spotlight at the Meadowlands in 2015 winning a $100,000 New Jersey Sire
Stakes Final with the freshman pacing filly Blue Moon
Stride. Overall, Harder’s stable earned more than $1
million for the 16th consecutive season, and Harder
passed 1,700 career wins and $38 million.
Harder came out flying in 2013 when his top free for
all pacer Golden Receiver made it back-to-back Presidential Series sweeps and January Horse of the Month
honors. The eight-year-old double millionaire also won
a TVG FFA event in 1:49.1. Harder finished fourth in
the Big M trainer standings with 24 wins, and won the
Charles Singer Memorial with Real Babe.
In 2012, Harder’s Golden Receiver paced the fastest
January mile in history (1:48). The son of Village Jove
carved out an amazing season at age seven, which
saw him win the Presidential, Spring Championship
(at Woodbine), Graduate, US Pacing Championship and William Haughton Memorial.
Harder also won the Cape and Cutter final with Symphony In Motion, and had success with
another Open class pacing mare in Royal Cee Cee N.
Harder grew up in a small community
of Johnsonville, New Zealand. His parents owned
a kiwi and avocado orchard, and Harder originally thought he would go to college to earn a
degree in agriculture. “Then I got the horse bug, and much to my parents’ dismay, started
working with horses after finishing high school.”
Harder apprenticed with some of New Zealand’s top horsemen, and in the late 1980s
was asked to travel to Chicago with a group of
horses to be sold. Harder traveled back
and
forth to the US on a regular basis for several
years before giving Los Angeles a try.
Upon the recommendation of Ross Croghan, whom
he knew in California, Harder went to
work for Bob Murphy’s large standardbred contingent in British Columbia for three years.
Problems with his work visa forced Harder to return to the US, and he went to work for
Croghan’s powerful stable in New Jersey.
Harder went out on his own in 2000, and with the backing owners such as Brian Nixon and
Aubrey Friedman, his stable quickly swelled. Harder ascended to the top of the training
ranks in 2004, winning his first Big M title during the January-August meet. That year, he
posted personal highs of 281 wins and $6,855,875, and pulled off the biggest upset in the
history of the $1 million Meadowlands Pace with Holborn Hanover, paying $119.00.

Julie Miller certainly faced her share of challenges and successes in
the 2014 season. Her husband Andy Miller was seriously injured in
an April 15th accident at Yonkers Raceway, breaking a pair of lumbar
vertebrae in his back, and requiring eight hours of surgery and months of recovery time. Andy had
guided world champion trotting mare Perfect Alliance to victory in the Charles Singer Memorial in a
stakes record of 1:52.2.

racing. Miller grew up in Iowa, where she spent many summers assisting her father, Owen Julius,
at the county fairs. Miller attained her training license when she was 18 and won her first race
at Quad City Downs in 1993. She began her career as a trainer-driver, and after graduating from
Southern Illinois University in 1995, she married top catch driver Andy Miller.

In 2015, most of Chris Ryder’s power came from New
Jersey Sires Stakes champion The Show Returns, a
sister to Ryder’s former standout Put On A Show, and
New York Sires Stakes star National Seelster. These
two three-year-old pacers sent Ryder past the $1 million
mark for the 16th season. Ryder has more than 1,300
career wins and $33 million.
At one point in 2014, Chris Ryder had three Hambletonian eligibles going in the right direction, NJSS division
winners Well Built and Odds On Amethyst, and Southwind Poseidon. Among those three, Ryder’s best finish
on Hambletonian Day was a third with Well Built in a
Townsend Ackerman division. He was also third in the
New Jersey Classic with Bushwacker.
Ryder was also forced to retire his stellar pacing filly I
Luv The Nitelife in 2014 due to injury and health issues. The Dan Patch Award winning daughter of Rocknroll Hanover earned $1.9
million, set two world records, and no female pacer in history has made more at
ages two and three when she won back-to-back O’Brien Awards.
Following in the footsteps of Ryder’s world champion pacing mare Put On A
Show was the standout I Luv The Nitelife. The near flawless performer, who was
firmly in the 2013 Horse of the Year conversation, streaked through a sensational
sophomore campaign with major wins in the Breeders Crown at Pocono Downs,
a two-heat world record in the Jugette a Delaware, the Simcoe at Mohawk, the
James Lynch Memorial at Pocono, the Mistletoe Shalee and Miss New Jersey
at the Meadowlands and the Valley Forge in a world record of 1:48.4 at Pocono.
She won 13 of 15, with a second and a third, 12 in a row and $1,253,757 that season.
Chris Ryder has played at the top end of the game for many years, producing champions like Sealed N Delivered, Cathedra Dot Com, McArdle, two-time
Breeders Crown champion Mystical Sunshine and 2010 Crown winner Put On A
Show, who set a world record of 1:47.3 and banked $2.4 million.
The New Zealand native arrived in the US in 1989 when his wife Nicola was
transferred to a Manhattan accounting firm. Ryder worked as an agent Down
Under and also when he first came to America.
Ryder gained a reputation as a gifted developer of young talent. He first gained
national attention with 1997 Two Year Old Colt Pacer of the Year Sealed N Delivered. Ryder was back in the spotlight in 2001 with Cathedra Dot Com, who
carved out a $1 million season. His other top horses were Too Much Trouble,
Kiwi Scooter N, Go For Grins, Ideal Towne, Brioso Hanover and Metropolitan.

personal best $4,118,950 campaign.
Saunders has won more than 1,200 races and $29 million and his stable earned
more than $1 million for 14 straight seasons from 2000 to 2013.
Saunders ranks among the Big M’s all-time leading trainers. Saunders did
not follow the typical path to a career training horses. Raised in Farmingdale,
New Jersey, Saunders spent two years in the army, including a year in Vietnam
(1969). He became a stockbroker and from 1972 to 1976 was the Director of Economics for the State of Delaware. For one day, he was even the acting Governor
of the State. Saunders earned a masters degree in finance from Temple University in 1980.
A licensed trainer since 1979, he campaigned two different Delaware Valley
Horses of the Year early in his career: Perky Fiddler and Chipper Frost.
Saunders has handled many other top pacers, including Misfit, Casimir Camotion, Mandretti, Indiana Sam, Master Barney, Die Lute, Armbro View and On
The Way Again.
A class act who always says the right thing at the right time to further a positive
image of the sport, Saunders has received numerous accolades, including Grand
Circuit Trainer of the Year and the W.R. Haughton Good Guy Award from the
United States Harness Writers. He was the keynote speaker at the 2012 USTA

equaling his own world record of 1:50.2 at The Red Mile, then rallying to upset the sport’s top trotters in the $172,200 Allerage Farms Final in 1:51.3.
Smedshammer came to the United States in 1987 after a mandatory year in the Norwegian army and was virtually penniless when he took a job in the barn of fellow Norwegian
Per Henriksen. Smedshammer stayed for six months before heading back to Norway
where he continued training. He returned a year later to work for Lindy Farms and was
part of their team when they won back-to-back Hambletonians in 1989 with Probe and
1990 with Harmonious.
In 1992, Smedshammer opened his own stable at White Birch
Farm in Allentown, New
Jersey, and he has proven himself as one
of the sport’s top trotting trainers. Some of his
unconventional methods included lunging horses in a sand pit and training on straightaways.
Smedshammer was named the Glen Garnsey Trainer of the Year in 2004 when his stable
banked a personal best of $5,311,104 and he campaigned three champions. Trotter of the
Year, Windsong’s Legacy, Three Year Old Filly Trotter of the Year, Housethatruthbuilt,
and Trotting Mare of the Year, Stroke Play. Windsong’s Legacy earned a single-season
record of $1.7 million. His victories in the Hambletonian, Yonkers Trot and Kentucky Futurity made him the first Trotting Triple Crown winner since Super Bowl in 1972.
Smedshammer has trained a record ten trotting millionaires, including Arch Madness,
Strong Yankee, Blur, HP Paque, Sand Vic, Break The Bank K and Dejarmbro.
His other stakes winners include Creamy Mimi, Bowlin For Dollars, Mr Pine Chip, Blue
Mac Lad and Here Comes Herbie.
Smedshammer co-owns (under the name American Viking Racing Stable) and drives
many of his trainees.

Ake Svanstedt sent three colts into the eliminations for
the 2015 Hambletonian, Workout Wonder, Centurion
ATM and Southwind Mozart, and although he didn’t
make it to the final he did dominate the $75,000 Vincennes Trot from post ten with favorite Resolve in 1:50.4.
That four-year-old by Muscle Hill is looking to fill a sizable void left by Svanstedt’s world champion Sebastian
K, who retired in 2015 due to injury.
Ake Svanstedt was a dominant force in Swedish racing
before making a major move to the United States in the
Fall of 2013, and opened a training facility in Vero Beach,
Florida with the Bender Family/Palema Stable. In 2014,
Svanstedt purchased Legend Farms, relocated his training operation to Wrightstown, New Jersey, and hired
Bjorn “Bernie” Noren as his assistant trainer.
Svanstedt captured five Trainer of the Year titles and three Driver of the Year awards in Sweden, and has more than 5,000 wins as a trainer and 6,400 as a driver. In his first two seasons
in the US, his stable won more than 100 races and banked over $4 million.
Svanstedt immediately made a huge impact in America, spearheaded by his super trotter
Sebastian K.
On May 10, 2014, Sebastian K, the eight-year-old barefoot wonder was making his first start
in the U.S., his first start in eight months and was coming off a nondescript qualifier (finished
fourth timed in 1:56.2). However, with an awesome and effortless 1:50.1 clocking, Sweden’s
2012 Horse of the Year equaled the mile track world record.
Sebastian K followed up his smashing American debut with a stakes record of 1:50.2
in the $175,000 Arthur J. Cutler Memorial, and another easy win in 1:50.3 just one week
later. On June 28, under perfect conditions at Pocono Downs, Svanstedt siezed the moment, actually urged on Sebastian K, and set the fastest trotting mile in history, a dazzling
1:49. No trotter in history has strung together such speedy miles.
On Hambletonian Day, Sebastian K once again equaled the mile world record of 1:50 (set
a week earlier by Archangel), and dominated the $300,650 John Cashman, Jr. Memorial,
while making him a perfect five-for-five at the New Meadowlands.
Svandstedt also captured the $355,500 Peter Haughton Memorial with Centurion ATM in a
track record of 1:53.2, and won a $50,000 Townsend Ackerman division with DD’s Hitman.
Svandstedt’s other major wins at the Big M in 2014 came with Your So Vain in the
$484,850 Hambletonian Maturity in a world record of 2:05.3 for a mile and an eighth, and
with Heaven’s Door in a $100,000 NJSS Final in a stakes record of 1:52.

After another blockbuster Hambletonian Day in 2015, Jimmy Takter
became the richest trainer in Meadowlands history, flying past the $31
million mark at the Big M. The Hall of Famer sent out five entries in
the Hambletonian eliminations, four advanced to the $1 million final,
and the steady gelding Pinkman gave Takter his second straight
Revere Bowl with back-to-back world records of 1:51.2 and 1:51. With
Yannick Gingras opting to drive Mission Brief, who won her elimination in 1:51.3, Pinkman picked up Brian Sears, and the pair held off
Gingras with the gallant filly. Takter trainees were also third and fourth
with Uncle Lasse and The Bank respectively. It was Takter’s fourth
Hambletonian, and he also captured the $500,000 Hambletonian Oaks
again with Wild Honey and Yannick Gingras, Takter’s fifth win in that
event.
In 2015, Takter passed 1,600 career training wins and $96 million.
Takter was voted Trainer of the Year for the fourth time in 2014 when
his stable earned a personal best $13,360,290. The leading trainer
in Breeders Crown history scored his third straight Crown triple with
Shake It Cerry, Pinkman and Father Patrick. Shake It Cerry also gave Takter a record sixth Trotter of the Year.
Takter campaigned the sport’s top five money winning trotters in 2014 and won all three legs of the Trotting
Triple Crown.
Takter was going for his third Hambletonian in 2014 with not one, but with the top three rated sophomore trotting colts: world champion Father Patrick, Trixton and Nuncio. In the $1 million final, Father Patrick drew post
ten and made a rare break, Nuncio was pressured on the lead throughout, and that allowed Takter himself to
guide Trixton to victory in 1:50.3. Takter also became only the second trainer to also win the Hambletonian
Oaks on the same day when Lifetime Pursuit set a world record of 1:50.4.
In 2013, Takter’s two-year-old stars were shining brightly on Hambletonian Day as Shake it Cerry set a stakes
and track record of 1:53.3 in the Merrie Annabelle and Father Patrick romped in the Peter Haughton Memorial
in 1:54.1. Both won Breeders Crowns, and with Uffizi Hanover also winning the Two Year Old Filly Pace, Takter
had his second straight Crown triple. Takter broke a tie with Bob McIntosh and became the leading trainer in
Breeders Crown history with 18 trophies.
In 2012, Jimmy Takter reached a pinnacle in his career by being inducted into the Harness Racing Hall of
Fame. The 55-year-old from Sweden rightly entered the pantheon of honorees at the height of his brilliant,
exemplary career and fittingly during his first $9 million season.
Nicknamed “Trotting Master,” Takter made a smooth transition onto the pacing side, producing a steady
stream of champions. Yet it was Takter’s trotters who made a strong impression on the Big M in 2012, most
notably To Dream On. The two-year-old filly by Credit Winner won her first five starts, including a stakes record
of 1:54 in the Merrie Annabelle. Takter won two divisions of the Stanley Dancer Memorial with Little Brown
Fox and Uncle Peter. The latter scored a Hambletonian elimination win, yet was the beaten favorite in the final
with Takter drove his own trainee Guccio to a second place finish. He also won a pair of NJSS Finals with Time
To Roll and Corky. Time To Roll was a close second in the $1.5 million North America Cup.
Takter campaigned 2012 Dan Patch Award honoree American Jewel, a career winner of more than $1.5 million,
who set a world record of 1:48.2 in the Fan Hanover at Mohawk.
In 1997, Takter was voted the Stanley Dancer Media Award by USHWA-NJ for his exemplary relationship with
the media. He also won his third Glen Garnsey Trainer of the Year Award in 2010. His native country, Sweden,
bestowed on him the coveted Gold Horse Award, voted on by the Swedish Harness Writers Association, for his
outstanding global accomplishments.
Takter’s name has become synonymous with trotting talent and his roster of world champions includes Tom
Ridge, Pampered Princess, Passionate Glide and Kadabra. He has trained two Horse of the Year honorees,
Moni Maker [1998 and 1999], and 1997 Hambletonian winner Malabar Man. Takter won his second Hambletonian in 2010 with Muscle Massive.
Takter’s other top horses include, Vintage Master, Simply Business, See You At Peelers, Ken Warkentin, Pastor
Stephen, Armbro Prowess, Mr Lavec, Kramer Boy, Solveig, Cabrini Hanover, Gleam and Lantern Kronos.

Linda Toscano continued to play at the high end of
the spectrum in 2015 with Open pacer and millionaire Doctor Butch and with her $3.7 million winning
trotter Market Share. By hitting the $1 million mark
in 13 of the last 14 seasons, Toscano also passed
1,700 career wins and $42 million.
Toscano won more than $2 million for the eighth
straight season in 2014. On Hambletonian Day she
won a $40,000 A-2/A-1/FFA Handicap with Heston
Blue Chip in 1:48.1 and finished second in the John
Cashman, Jr. Memorial with her triple millionaire
Market Share.
Late in 2013, Market Share captured the $500,000
TVG FFA Final in 1:51 at the New Meadowlands
and was the unanimous choice for Older Trotter of
the Year, his second straight Dan Patch Award.
Linda Toscano maintained her upper echelon profile with another strong season in 2013,
winning more than 100 races for the fifth straight year, and her stable earned over $3 million for the fifth time in six seasons.
Toscano enjoyed a dream season in 2012 when she was voted Trainer of the Year, campaigned Horse of the Year Chapter Seven, became the first female trainer to win the $1.5
million Hambletonian with Market Share and banked $6 million for the first time. The millionaire four-year-old trotter Chapter Seven blazed a world record of 1:50.1 winning the Nat
Ray. Toscano also won a New Jersey Sires Stakes final for two- year-old trotting fillies with
Southwind Cocoa. She sent out a pair of top flight three-year-old pacers in Heston Blue
Chip and Bettors Edge, plus freshman pacing star Doctor Butch.
Toscano is by far the most successful female trainer in Meadowlands history.
The 60-year-old breast cancer survivor started attending the races some 40 years ago
when her father would take her to Roosevelt and Yonkers Raceways. She got her start with
Buddy Regan in New York, and also worked with John Campbell when he had a stable.
She went out on her own in 1984 and was the leading trainer in her home state before moving full-time to the Meadowlands in 1988.
The Rutgers Equine Science Center named Toscano the 2013 recipient of their annual
‘Spirit of the Horse’ award, which recognizes individuals whose lives have been profoundly changed because of their involvement with horses and who have acknowledged
the impact by giving back to the horse industry.
Among Toscano’s other top horses was the rugged pacer Jet Laag, who earned more than
$1 million and set a world record of 1:49 on the half-mile track at Delaware, Ohio in 1999.
Other standouts for Toscano include 1995 Older Trotting Mare of the Year Giant Mermaid,
Kenneth J, Share The Delight, Athena Blue Chip, Mean And Green, Comeatross, Molly
Can Do It and Funny Malentine.
